Curious to see what the lowest MPG per tank people are getting. It varies with season, temp, winter/summer fuel, speed, etc. The lowest I got in a tank was in Montana early this month. Temps were in the teens and all highway driving at 80-85 MPH. 19.1 MPG hand calculated. I drove 198 miles during this tank.

28.3 mpg calculated on 287 miles of exclusively city driving in mostly sub-freezing temps. Did not pump after first click so probably lower than the calculation.

At the other end of the spectrum, we achieved a 42+ mpg tank on over 400 miles of city/suburban driving in Florida in mostly 60-75 deg temps and pretty much zero elevation changes.
